Engilberts Offers Inventive Designs that Feature the Work of Jón Engilberts
Engilberts is a dynamic design company that cherishes the work of one of Iceland’s most beloved artists, Jón Engilberts. Jón was a very accomplished and distinguished artist who won the Van Gogh prize in 1939, and was given the Order of the Falcon from the president of Iceland in 1961. The owner of the company, Greta Engilberts, is Jón’s granddaughter. She owns the rights to his work and wants to celebrate his memory by printing his work onto various design products. The goal is to allow Jón’s art to live on and her dedication is to bringing Jón’s art to the people.
